>Homophobia – Are We Taking It Too Far???

>A funny thing happened this evening. One of my boys sent me a text saying “tell me how your day was.” When I saw this text, the first thing that came to my mind was “okay, maybe he mistakenly sent it to me instead of some babe.” So I call him back and he says he actually sent it to me. Was there anything wrong with him asking about how his friend’s day had gone??? No there wasn’t. As a matter of fact, there was a time when we would generally gist on the phone for like one hour (Starcomms free weekend calls) and I’d tell him what was going on and all of that. Generally just boys’ gist. But this…felt different. I felt like, you don’t send a message to a guy asking him to send you a text telling you how his day was do you (if you’re a guy). It just felt very…gay.

Then I realized what it was. Homophobia.

I’m a rather homophobic individual. The idea of homosexuality scares (and also irritates) the hell outta me. But why, would it be gay for a friend to send a text asking ‘bout how you’re doing?
What has become the world standard on what is gay and what is not? These days, friendly and innocent behaviour between two guys can be termed “gay”. What’s going on with us guys???
